Chaka Khan Says She's Nervous to Perform at Aretha Franklin's Funeral [Video]

Chaka Khan’s performances have been rather interesting lately — so it’s understandable she’s nervous to perform at Aretha Franklin’s funeral.

via TMZ:

We got the iconic funk singer Wednesday as she was heading off to Detroit from LAX to get ready for the Queen of Soul’s Friday’s funeral service — which will include performances from Stevie WonderJennifer HudsonFaith HillAriana Grande and Chaka herself.

Our camera guy asked if she’s nervous to get onstage to honor Aretha, and surprisingly … she says absolutely! That’s saying a lot for someone who’s been rocking stages since at least the ’70s, if not well before that. Still, even for Chaka … delivering for Aretha’s got her jittery.

She even tells us what song she’s going to sing — and finishes by offering an unofficial invite to the First Family … should they be inclined to attend.
